Since we were in the general vicinity, Alex and I headed up to the Farm this morning to visit. She was amazed and delighted to find that Great Grandpa Ed had 35 new arrivals in his house...baby chicks who just arrived on the farm yesterday!
When she wasn't gazing adoringly at the chicks, she spent time playing with 'Fuzzy'. In fact, she even got to 'groom' him. The poor dog was basically huddled under Great-Grandpa's legs until he realized that Alex wasn't going to cause him any problems-- then he relaxed and let her gently scratch his back with his comb. He definitely earned an extra treat or two today!
One of Alex's favorite things to do is to hijack my camera and take photos. She's getting quite good at it. Here's her portrait of "Fuzzy".
Besides keeping herself entertained with new animal friends while my grandpa and I visited, she got to go and harvest the first strawberries of the season. Mmmm.... she got some juicy berries and good strawberry picking tips from Great Grandpa!
